Blending Photos in Photoshop Post-Production
Photoshop Post-Production a photographer’s chance to show their unique creativity and style; blending photos is a fun way of doing just that.
For the photo above, I blended the following three photos, one of Natalia, one of the Tetons (Grand Teton National Park) and one of a free rainbow texture I found online. It turned out way more colorful than my originals:
Natalia is such a fun friend! She is always willing to help capture amazing photographs. In Photoshop post-production, I selected Natalia then masked out everything around her. Then I copied and pasted Natalia to a photo I view of the Tetons closer up. The hardest part of masking around Natalia was the leather fringe on her coat.

Above is the original photo I took of the Tetons. Before I blended this photo with the photo of Natalia (above), I used the clone stamp to remove the fence from the foreground. Then, added this rainbow png that I found online:
Lastly, I dodged and burned to bring out the highlights and low lights. What do you think of the final result?
Here is another photoshop post-production image I blended using photoshop:
This was the original photo I shot when coming over the mountain from Jackson Hole, Wyoming:
I blended my original photo with a free photo of an eagle that I found online. I selected the eagle out of the photo and then used the “select and mask” feature in photoshop to capture the detailed feathered edges.
Since there was already snow in my original photo, I added some additional snow texture.
This is the same original photo and snow texture I used above. In this photoshop post-production photo using a Color Lookup Theme and Background blend. Only in this photo, I used a different eagle. Which eagle photo do you like best?
